> In reply to Dick Wood @ 2014-04-27 23:26 from mnfh - click to readWell i feel like an idiot now, but anyway, the speaker is fine. I figured out how to adjust the volume a couple of days ago. You just have to press up/down on the front buttons during a call. It even says so in the manual, i guess i just read right past it.

So basically it's a great phone if you disregard the fact that the front buttons aren't illuminated. Definitely recommend it if you're just looking for a phone to text and call. It does have all the basics as well, like a calculator, organiser, radio, voice recorder, mp3 player and low level camera. And for my personal preference it gets style points as well since it's classic slider.

I'll give it an 8/10 overall relative to it's category. Negatives for me: no flashlight, no T9, afaik no ability to switch of gprs, and the unlit front buttons.

The e2600 has one MAJOR flaw. The audio on the speaker (the part you hold to your ear) is way too low. You can only understand the other person when you're in a completely quiet room. If there's any noise at all (cars, wind, music, whatever) you barely hear their voice.

One other minor annoyance, the front buttons aren't illuminated so you can't see them in the dark. Not a big deal but it would've been better if they were.

It's a shame though, besides the crappy speaker this phone was almost exactly what i was looking for. I'll probably go back to the store and see if i can trade it in for something else. Too bad.

in the "contacts" menu navigate the tabs left or right, you'll find "favorites" > follow what you see, it's simple.

Good phone for the oldies, I enjoy it much!

Hello,
I just got mine 2600,
This mobile is pretty reliable , comfort and user friendly.
I'd like to ask, if anyone knows,
Is there any way to assign the upper right standard button?
The current setting activates instantly the Opera mini browser, I prefer to set it to contacts..
Any help ?
Thank you

Very attractive little phone but the instructions with it are completely useless to any new owner.
Wouldn't have cost Samsung much to supply a decent manual for the phone on their site rather than a copy of their tatty little instructions, rather takes the shine off it and not a good advert for Samsung.

I have my new phone set to ring when a new message is received. Is it possible to have it ring more than once or remind me that I have an unread message?

Doesn't play mp4 files like I thought, only seems to play mp4 files created by the phone.

Very disappointed, if anyone knows how to fix this please tell

Bought this Samsung E2600, last September, from Vodafone and have been back to the shop 3 times already. it was sent away for service and a faulty component was replaced and it was fully checked over. They had to send me a new battery as phone wasn't charging. OK for a few days, but the charging icon isn't lighting up and new battery is going down. Looks like another trip to Vodafone. Anyone else with these problems? Any ideas welcome!
